Hamas Murders Four Jews Near Hebron


August 31, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Four Israeli Jews were murdered near Hebron today by Hamas terrorists. Two of those killed were the parents of ten children.

All of the dead had been capped at close range after the initial fusillade to make sure they were dead. According to Israel National News the attacks were, "probably timed to coincide with and affect the direct talks between Israel and the PA in Washington, D.C., that are to begin Thursday." [source, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/139426]

There have been calls by Israeli MKs for PM Netanyahu to return to Israel amidst accusations made that he has blood on his hands. The Israeli Prime Minister has said the talks would go on as scheduled.

MK Uri Ariel [National Union party] said: "It is clear by now - the most violent period is when there is a diplomatic process. Netanyahu must freeze the talks immediately and concentrate on safeguarding the security of the citizens of Israel." [source, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/139427]

Geert Wilders Calls Islam "Backward"


August 31, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a just aired Australian television interview - recorded six weeks earlier - Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, called Islam "backward." He said that Islam cannot be compared to Christianity and that "It is a violent ideology comparable to communism and fascism." He also reiterated his aim to establish an international anti-Islam organization.[see, http://www.trouw.nl/nieuws/nederland/article3184666.ece/Wilders_noemt_islam_achterlijk_op_Australische_tv.html.

Wilders latest interview has sent Dutch officials scrambling to practice damage control fearing that because of his strong electoral showing he will be seen as a voice of the Dutch government. They are especially concerned about what he will say during his speech on 911 at the anti-Ground Zero Mosque rally, to be held in New York. So concerned is the Dutch government with the impact of Wilders that last month it issued a document for diplomats with suggested "talking points" regarding Wilders.

Florida Security Council - "Florida Mosque Caught on Video Raising Money for HAMAS Fundraiser"

August 30, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A newly released and hard hitting expose produced jointly by the New English Review and the Florida Security Council, charges that the Al-Rahman mosque in Orlando has been used to generate funding for terrorism, "Busted - Orlando Mosque Finances Hamas Fundraiser...on June 14, 2009 a special investigative unit infiltrated the Al-Rahman Mosque in Orlando, FL..."

The information, according to the video, "uncovered...an international conspiracy to fund Islamic terrorism from within the US via George Galloway, imam Mahdi Bray, and imam Mohammed Musri... one year later, Federal, State and local authorities have granted permission to release the video."

Video below:

While the controversy over constructing a mosque at New York's Ground Zero rages, largely absent in discussing the matter is how the building of mosques in the United States, often under guidance of foreign powers such as the Saudis, serves to establish domestic beachheads from which Shari'a [Islamic law, a repressive, brutal, and bigoted remnant from the 7th century] is being spread.

This movement - of re-establishing the Caliphate [Muslim world empire] - has been led by Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the ancestral and intellectual source of all modern day Islamic terrorism.

Formed in the 1920's, the Muslim Brotherhood has been instrumental in creating and funding terrorist groups [Hamas for example] where possible and, in countries where Muslims are in the minority, pushing for Shari'a compliance, of making the governing mechanisms of Western nations subservient to Islamic religious law in furtherance of the Caliphate.

During the 1990s several documents were discovered in terror raids which precisely laid out the Muslim Brotherhood's plan which stated in part its committment to, "destroying Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." [source, Washington Times, August 17, 2010, ]http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/aug/17/obamas-teachable-shariah-moment/] through, "a civilizational jihadist process."

This above board plan for subversive action is operative in many U.S. cities, often using local mosques as incubators of sedition, "This is in order for the Islamic center to turn - in action not in words - into a seed "for a small Islamic society" which is a reflection and a mirror to our central organizations. The center ought to turn into a "beehive" which produces sweet honey." [source, the Investigative Project, Muslim Brotherhood's, "An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America 5/22/1991, http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/20.pdf, document in Arabic and English translation, p. 27]

So important was the discovery of this Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy, the document was used in the largest successful prosecution [conviction of all defendants, including the founder of the Texas chapter of CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, on all of 108 charges] of domestic funding of terrorism. Additionally the prosecution named several U.S. groups including the above noted CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA] and the North American Islamic Trust [NAIT, which owns many U.S. mosques, masjids and Islamic centers] as unindicted co-conspirators. This designation forced the FBI to halt all outreach to CAIR. [note, for an exhaustive discussion of this aspect of this matter, please refer to http://www.investigativeproject.org/732/isna-admits-hamas-ties]

Bound by an extreme interpretation of multiculturalism [enforced in a top down manner within news organizations] and a 30-second sound-bite mentality, the majority of the media is avoiding this "story behind the story," like the plague.

Proceeding to discuss the Ground Zero mosque, while ignoring the Muslim Brotherhoods role in forcing Shari'a compliance, invites official acceptance of a plan whereby the Western democracies will eventually become subservient to rule by Muslim fanatics - a harsh statement, but one grounded in fact.

Karzai Echoes Marine Commandant Conway's Criticism of Obama's Afghan Pullout Date

August 27, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On August 24, David T. Conway, Commandant of the Marine Corp. employed unusually blunt language in his criticism of team Obama's artificially set Afghan pullout date of July 2011.

Conway suggested that the policy constitutes giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

"… it's probably giving our enemy sustenance. We think that he may be saying to himself - in fact, we've intercepted communications that say, hey, you know, we only have to hold out for so long." [source, New York Times, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/25/world/asia/25military.html?src=me]

Following in short order, today Afghan president Karzai, said much the same thing, claiming that the deadline date served to boost the morale of the Taliban, confident that it can wait out the clock until U.S. troops are withdrawn next year. [see, UK Guardian, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/7967883/Barack-Obama-US-troop-withdrawal-deadline-a-boost-to-Taliban.html]

During the previous week, on the August 15 edition of Meet the Press, Afghan theatre commander David Petraeus set the same tone, unequivocally stating that, "I Didn't Come Out Here to Carry Out a Graceful Exit." [source, Meet the Press, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38686033/ns/meet_the_press-transcripts]

That these three key players in the Afghan war are of like mind, opposing Obama's intention of arbitrarily ending the American role in Afghanistan by next summer, adds materially to the president's mounting problems as the mid-term elections loom barely 60 days out.

We Have Come For Your Kids - Part II


August 24, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Continuing our roundup of CA's far reaching and devious education bills, it seems as though the tactic of these out-of-control legislators is to - under the guise of "building bridges" - empower the self-appointed "master planners" to override parental authority and plan the future of other people's children.

When educators and legislators talk about the development of education master plans they always start out by referring to the 1960's creation of the once in a lifetime created California master plan. From there they make it appear that any current activity in this regard is just a mere adjustment of those plans and goals.

The original master plan set standards for, basically, what type of educational programs the various levels of state schools, especially, colleges and universities would concentrate on offering plus linkage of all education, K-18, into one smooth exercise in accessing entrance.

It also addressed issues of equal opportunities regardless of social and economic levels, and easing of access regulations for all students in California.

Today's goals for an Education Master Plan go way beyond that to determining in the early years just what educational channel each child will walk through throughout the child's educational years ending in the pre-planned and desired college graduation outcome and into workforce enrollment.

In Sacramento there is the legislative Joint Committee on the California Education Master Plan. Its committee is composed of the legislators who most often are the authors of all the touchy/feely pseudo education; social studies programs or after school, health care, workforce development bills.

This committee periodically holds hearings on education, the latest being in March of this year. John "I'm ok, you're ok" Vasconcellos, former Santa Clara legislator and chairman of the Education Committee that wrote legislation to re-do the Education Master Plan was one of the presenters at that March hearing.

The latest Education Master Plan legislation, AB 1901, Post-Secondary Education Master Plan is authored by Assemblyman Ira Ruskin, (D-Santa Clara). It has passed both houses and is awaiting the Governor's signature. He has until August 31 to sign or veto this bill. I would urge a veto.

Here is the stated goal of this bill: "California has now passed the threshold of becoming a state with a new multicultural majority as the ethnic composition of the population is changing dramatically. Our state's future economic, social, and cultural development depends upon ensuring that all its citizens have opportunities to develop themselves so that they can contribute their best to society."

Note that the emphasis is on contributing to society, not to one's personal, academic and intellectual development in order to more efficiently direct one's own life.

AB 1901 continues:

"…Current estimates indicate that California will need to prepare more than one million additional graduates by the year 2025 in public higher education institutions to meet our workforce needs. [emphasis added] California needs to prepare now for the projected enrollments in the 21st century. And, if the goals of the master plan and its subsequent updates are to be fully achieved, especially if groups that are historically and currently underrepresented increase their rates of participation in higher education, enrollments will most likely exceed even these projections.

"…California must support an educational system that prepares all Californians for responsible citizenship and meaningful careers [emphasis added] in a multicultural society; this requires a commitment from all to make high-quality education available and affordable for every Californian.

"…To accomplish these goals, California's system of higher education will need to expand.

"…It is the intent of the Legislature that the work completed by the master plan review committee be used to guide higher education policy."

The only supporter of this bill is the Post Secondary Education Committee itself yet it passed both houses with flying colors. Also an accompanying Assembly Committee Resolution was passed favoring passage of ACR 184 which means that all the legislators approve of this bill without having to put their signatures to it.

This bill very much needs to be vetoed. However, it is the community organizations, stakeholders as they are referred to, who latch onto bills like this in order to promote their programs as those which will most benefit the ultimate goal of an outcome planned student.

It is in the following type bills that we see who will prosper under the elitists efforts to create the future adult most beneficial to society.

SB 798, Mark DeSaulnier, Before and After School Programs.

Since the school day is already so taken up with academics plus programs it is necessary to expand the school day through before and after school programs in order for the Stakeholders to gain access to the students.

This bill addresses the financing of programs but not the specifics of content. It allocates $25,000 a year for five years per after school site if that site conforms to approved 21st Century Community Learning Programs. This is a group which has been given approval by the state to develop programs.

This bill is supported by Children Now, a conglomerate of reproductive rights and parental controls organizations along with Invest In Kids, another umbrella family intervention program.

A companion bill, SB 1157, Education: Healthy Schools Act of 2010 [sponsored by Mark De Saulnier (D-Walnut Creek], is a sop to the environmental groups who would enter the schools and get goals and standards for running the schools according to politically correct standards.

It is sponsored by Parents for Safer School Environment and San Francisco Bay Keeper, both approved for Obama's Greening of America objectives regardless of the costs to taxpayers or states. It also maintains after school programs on environmental issues for students.

SB 1381, Joe Simitian, (D-Santa Clara) Kindergarten: Age of Admission. Amends the age at which is a child admitted to Kindergarten and or first grade. Age is now 6 for First Grade but will be dropped to age 5 and places the student in a transitional class of older aged kindergarteners and First graders. This will have the effect of dropping the age for regular kindergarten and open the options for even younger pre-school.

One of the supporters of this bill is the California Association of School Psychologists. Recall that we have written articles about Senator Leland Yee's and Sen. Mark Leno's bills regarding mental health problems of students all of whom need professional direction including monitoring pregnant women to insure that their preborn child is born mentally healthy. If the psychologists can't get the babies at birth, at least they can try to start getting them at age 3 and 4.

SB - 1380, sponsored by Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley), School Facilities: Construction. Although this bill sounds harmless. It addresses various needs for school construction and modernization, but it is endorsed by a group entitled California Association of Leaders of Career Preparation - CALCP. It seeks funding and authorization through Bonds to direct school construction towards buildings, etc that will facilitate career development not academic preparation. This is not your old auto workshop or home economics with sewing machines, etc.

If you think all of this is just pie in the sky silliness, I would direct your attention to the years of planning that the city of Vallejo put into developing a City master plan for children, birth to 18 years. Every agency they could think of got involved in setting up goals for everybody else's child including training teachers to conduct home visitations, mentoring, etc. before and after school activities, etc. Just Google "young master plan," to see all the programs.

While we are all agonizing over mythical homosexual plans for marriage, ex-Governor Blagojevich's guilt or innocence, saving turtles, etc, the legislature is planning on ways to take over the parental duties. In these proposed bills your children are treated as if they are the property of the state. Warning…this legislation is either sitting on the Governor's desk or waiting for a final Assembly floor vote - there is little time to voice concern.

AP Provides Revisionist "Guidance" For its Journos On 911 Mosque Controversy

August 23, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - AP, in its offering of "guidance" [August 19, http://www.ap.org/pages/about/pressreleases/pr_081910b.html] to its reporters on the 911 mosque issue, shamelessly admits what most observant media commentators have already noted, that the organization has abandoned all pretense of objectivity, and joined the mad media rush to support - what Rush Limbaugh has so trenchantly termed - the "911 Ha-mosque" being pushed by stealth jihadist imam Faisal Rauf.

In this document, AP counsels its tyro journos, "We should continue to avoid the phrase "ground zero mosque" or "mosque at ground zero" on all platforms. (We’ve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other news sources using the term.) The site of the proposed Islamic center and mosque is not at ground zero, but two blocks away in a busy commercial area. We should continue to say it’s “near" ground zero, or two blocks away."

Not Ground Zero?

Fact: tens of thousands of body parts have so far been recovered, they were scattered all over Lower Manhattan. In a world of bias-free reporting this would give great credence to designating the entire area in and around the Twin Tower site as being Ground Zero.

As AP itself stated in 2006, "About 20,000 pieces of human remains were found..." [source, Associated Press via MSNBC, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15345694/]

The Daily Mail notes that these remains are strewn throughout the area surrounding the actual impact site, "The lab has also received hundreds of bone fragments discovered on the roof of a building just south of where the trade center had stood. The building had been condemned since the attacks and was about to be torn down when workers found the bone pieces." [source, Daily Mail, New Body Parts Found, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-411709/New-body-parts-Ground-Zero.html]

Fact: The Burlington building, the proposed location for the mosque was severely damaged by one of the airliners' landing gears on its glide path towards the WTC. This would seem to make the building not only part of Ground Zero but perhaps the largest remaining relic of the September 11 attack.

Says the Washington Times, "one of the 9/11 planes that smashed into the World Trade Center dropped its landing gear on the old Burlington Coat Factory building. It is likely those who were around the area included themselves in Ground Zero territory." The piece also notes that those who ran from the collapsing towers ran much farther than AP's efforts at demarcating the official site within limited confines would allow. [source, Washington Times, http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2010/aug/19/ap-reporters-refer-gz-mosque-nyc-mosque-now/]

If one cares to read it, the entirety of the AP advisory reeks of demonstrably false assertions, all part of a plan to - now that the effort to build a 911 mosque appears to be floundering - decouple Rauf's proposed site from its association with the events of September 11, 2001.

That effort will fail, as will the coincident efforts by American Islamists - with whom AP seems to be in league - to separate Islam from Muslim terror.

Hey guys, check the polls 210,000,000 Americans [70%] aren't buying the bilge, your brand of journalism is dead.

Islamizing Europe - Northeast London Schools Now Only Serving Halal Meat

August 21, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Chalk up another victory for aggressive Islamists in the UK who have convinced [or strong armed] the Harrow school council in North London to serve only Halal meat in the areas high schools.

Outraged parents say they were not consulted before the decision to promote Shari'a compliance was made.

It must be particularly galling for non-Muslims in the school district to be denied any choice whatever in this matter considering that only 7% of the population in the area is Muslim, while nearly 50% remain Christian. [source, London Daily Mail, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1300589/Parents-fury-town-hall-plans-halal-menus-schools.html]

This further encroachment of Shari'a into British society builds upon the firm groundwork that was laid during the Blair administration when an alternative system of jurisprudence was established involving the creation of at least 85 Islamic courts throughout the country. These tribunals have the same legitimacy in Brit eyes as do the secular courts and serve primarily to adjudicate family matters among Muslims.

Critics have pointed out, with little effect, that the new system abandons Muslims, especially women, to a barbaric 7th century system of jurisprudence which is incompatible with Western principles.

With the Downing Street government firmly committed to a particularly perverse conception of multiculturalism it's hard to see how this trend will not continue to play out as Europe's Muslims inexorably push towards forcing Shari'a compliance across the entire continent.

Norway and Sweden: A Safe Haven for Dangerous Islamist Terrorists


August 16, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Norway’s daily “Aftenposten" reported in June 2009 that 33 Taliban asylum seekers were allowed to stay in Norway, even though they previously admitted having tortured or executed prisoners or having been Taliban soldiers. The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (“Utlendingsdirektorat" or UDI) did not want them to stay, but they were overruled by the Immigration Appeals Board (“Utlendingsnemnda") or UNE. The Taliban asylum seekers were then given residence “on humanitarian ground."

A very silly decision indeed. “Aftenposten" correctly pointed out that “Norwegian forces often clash with Taliban groups in Afghanistan." Four Taliban asylum seekers also claimed they had converted to Christianity – but only after their arrival in Norway, possibly to make a favorable impression on the Norwegian immigration authorities. Unfortunately, Norwegian immigration authorities and courts are rather lenient with respect to granting residence permits to so-called refugees from source countries of terrorism.

A former Taliban Health Minister named Abdul Mohammad Rauf got asylum in 2001. Later, his family was allowed to join him. But he was subsequently convicted by an Oslo court for beating his 14-year old daughter. He also made several suspicious trips to Pakistan, possibly with a view to contacting local terrorist networks. Back in Norway, he gave ideological training to 25 young men some of whom planned to carry out terrorist acts in Norway. Others wanted to go abroad to participate elsewhere in the jihad, (“hellig krig i utlandet"" or Holy War abroad), the Norwegian newspaper “Dagbladet" reported.

The case of Mullah Krekar

Mullah Krekar, an Iraqi Kurd, is another example of a Muslim jihadist whose asylum request had not been declined by the Norwegians – nine years ago, that is. Krekar subsequently founded his own terrorist organization, “Ansar Al-Islam" which cooperated with Al-Qaeda. They were also known as the “Kurdish Taliban." Krekar (“Abu Sayed") is a strong admirer of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and praised suicide bombing as “the biggest Jihad for Islam."

In November 2009, Krekar gave an interview to the Arab TV channel “Al-Hiwar," saying he wanted to establish a new Islamic Caliphate (Islamic theocracy or superstate) led by Osama bin Laden, his deputy Ayman Al-Zawahiri or bin Laden’s Afghan ally Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. (When I was in Pakistan in 1983, moderate Afghans and an American expert on Afghanistan in New York warned me against Hekmatyar whom they regarded as a serious threat to the Afghan cause; anti-Western hate cleric Hekmatyar did not hesitate to receive ample cash from the CIA at the time.) Krekar met Osama bin Laden in Peshawar, Pakistan, as early as 1988 and has supported him ever since.

So far, the Norwegian government failed to deport Krekar to Iraq. Deportation orders were not implemented as the government fears that the former Al-Ansar leader could face the death penalty there. Once again, European human rights treaties and requirements give protection to those asylum seekers who turn out to be dangerous terrorists, thus creating safe havens for them not only in Scandinavia but all over Europe. (In Britain, too, the government failed to deport dangerous terrorists – many of whom were former asylum seekers – after British deportation orders had successfully been challenged in lenient British courts.)

The 1954 Refugee Convention, though, says that the prohibition of expulsion or return (“refoulement") “may not be claimed by a refugee whom there are reasonable grounds for regarding as a danger to the security of the country in which he is." In his thorough study “The Refugee in International Law" Guy S. Goodwin writes: “Whether he or she may be considered a security risk appears to be left very much to the judgment of the State authorities."

In Norway, Mullah Krekar continues to pose a threat to national security. That is why Jorn Holme, the chief of Norway’s “Police Security Service" (“Politiets sikkerhetsjeneste" or PST) wants Krekar to be deported as soon as possible. Krekar even issued death threats against Norwegian Conservative Party politician Erna Solberg who wants him to be deported straightaway: “My death will cost Norwegian society. If, for example, Erna Solberg throws me out of the country and I die as a result, she will suffer the same fate," “The Foreigner" (Norwegian news in English) reported last June. “He was not specific as to who would carry it out, but named both Ansar Al-Islam and Al-Qaeda." Progress Party Leader Siv Jensen plans on filing charges against Krekar: “This is nothing but a threat of terror act on Norwegian soil, if he isn’t left in peace. I don’t think you should be able to get away with that, and believe that such a serious threat in itself is enough to put the man in jail."

A recently disrupted Al-Qaeda plot in Norway

On July 8, 2010, German and Norwegian police arrested three terror suspects linked to a wider Al-Qaeda plot to stage terrorist attacks in Norway and other countries. Another arrest was made in Manchester, Britain, involving a Pakistani student named Abid Naseer. Those arrested in Norway and Germany were:

  • Shawan Saeed Bujak (37), an Iraqi Kurd living in Oslo. He was arrested in the German city of Duisburg and Norway asked to extradite him.
  • David Jakobsen (31), Uzbek living in Oslo who received a residence permit via family reunification.
  • Mikael Davud (39), Norwegian citizen of Chinese-Uighur background. Davud was formerly called Muhammad Rashidin but he changed his name in 2007.
  • Norwegian officials said the three men were planning to stage terrorist attacks in Norway using hydrogen peroxide bombs – “the same type of homemade bombs allegedly planned in Manchester and New York," the London “Daily Telegraph" reported. This kind of bomb is also referred to as “Mother of Satan." The three men reportedly obtained the chemicals for the bomb in February or March this year. They are believed to be linked to the “East Turkestan Islamic Movement" (ETIM) and the “Islamic Jihad Union" (IJU). Both movements are close allies of Al-Qaeda and most of their recruits are Chinese Uighurs, ethnic Turks and Uzbeks.

    Before the 9/11 attacks in 2001, the Taliban used to send Uighurs to the northern Afghan province of Kunduz where they were trained by the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, another Al-Qaeda ally. Einar Wigen, a Norwegian terror expert who published the report “Islamic Jihad Union: Al-Qaeda’s Key to the Turkic World?", says that “the Uighur and Uzbek jihadists are often in the same networks. Similarities in language could contribute to making the recruiting process easier." Mikael Davud (Muhammad Rashidin) previously traveled to Pakistan’s lawless tribal region of Waziristan to be trained as a jihadist.

    This shows once again how terrorism is exported to Europe by Muslim immigrants abusing their refugee status or residence permits. “In general, it’s very ‘classic’ for jihadists in Europe that just one in the group that plans terrorist acts gets training in camps, and has contact with the leaders, and that they recruit new members who already have citizenship or residence permits in Western countries," says Einar Wigen. “There are many similarities here with previous attacks in Europe, both those carried out and planned." Many of these attacks, including the foiled attacks in Britain and Norway, were probably planned by Saleh Al-Somali, a Somali terrorist who was Al-Qaeda’s external operations chief. Al-Somali was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Waziristan in December 2009.

    In recent years at least six Uzbeks and Uighurs were given residence permits in Norway although they belonged to the radical Islamist party Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT). The decision to give these Islamists asylum was taken by the same “Immigration Appeals Board" (UNE) which recently granted asylum to 33 Taliban asylum seekers. Not only is HuT a terrorist organization that advocates the oppression of women, also do they openly espouse anti-Semitism, calling for the “destruction of the Jews and their usurping state in Palestine." Fadi Abdelatif, HuT spokesman in Denmark, distributed an anti-Semitic leaflet quoting the Koran: “Kill them (the Jews, that is) wherever you find them." “In August 2002, HuT in Denmark reportedly offered the equivalent of pound sterling 25,000 to anyone who killed a prominent Danish Jew," Melanie Philips, a British columnist, writes in “The Australian." Indeed, to allow such people into Europe is not very different from granting asylum to Nazis and Neo-Nazis. (There would really be an outcry if that were to happen.)


    An Uzbek TV documentary aired on May 27, 2010, claimed that Sweden was sheltering a terrorist cleric named Obidkhon Nazarov who arrived in Sweden in 2005. From Sweden “he is stil trying to set up his jihad group" that planned terrorist attacks in Uzbekistan, the documentary said. Nazarov denies links to extremists in Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan, though, believes Nazarov was implicated in a series of suicide attacks that struck the U.S. and Israeli embassies in 2004 and recently made another attempt to destabilize the country.

    More dangerous are the Somali networks in Sweden. At least 20 people – most of whom have a Somali background – have traveled from Sweden to Somalia to be trained or participate in acts of violence, according to the Swedish Security Service Säpo (“Säkerhetspolisen"). “Around ten people from Sweden are believed to be at a terrorist training camps in Somalia." So far, four Swedish citizens have been killed in Somalia. All these jihadists were linked to the Somali terror network Al-Shabaab, an Al-Qaeda ally. Säpo has previously referred to Sweden as a base for “recruitment, logistical support and financing of terrorism," “The Local" (Sweden) reported. Although Osama bin Laden “singled out Sweden as an example of a freedom-loving state that did not merit attack" (in 2004), subsequent statements by Al-Qaeda affiliates suggest this is no longer the case. Malena Rembe, a Säpo counter-terrorism analyst, told “Jane’s Intelligence Review" that “Intelligence, internet chatter and postings by groups such as AQI (“Al-Qaeda in Iraq") are increasingly mentioning Sweden or Swedish interests as a potential target for Islamist terrorism." Säpo told Jane’s “that members of several terrorist organizations are present in Sweden and that they are fairly active in providing logistical support to their organizations." One of the targets of Islamist terrorists is Swedish artist Lars Vilks who made a series of drawings depicting the Islamic prophet Mohammed as a roundabout dog. In March 2010, U.S. citizen Colleen R. LaRose, a radicalized Muslim convert also known as “Jihad Jane," was charged with trying to recruit Islamist terrorists to murder Vilks. Two months later, Vilks’ house was attacked by arsonists. Two Kosovan-Swedish brothers were subsequently arrested and tried.

    In February 2010, Säpo arrested three Swedish citizens of Somali origin who were suspected of preparing terrorist attacks and financing terrorism, “The Local" reported. “One of the men was the same man who had a map of artist Lars Vilks’ house confiscated by police last year."

    In June 2010, another Somali-Swede was arrested by heavily armed police in Rinkeby, a suburb of Stockholm. He is believed to have connections to the Somali terror network Al-Shabaab. In May 2010, a Somali-Swede living in the southern city of Gothenburg was remanded in custody by the Gothenburg District Court. He had been in Somalia for about a year.

    The cities of Gothenburg and Malmö are known safe havens for Islamists and Islamist terrorists who can easily hide among the large Muslim immigrant communities. A Swedish documentary produced by Oscar Hedin showed a Swedish Muslim convert from Gothenburg who spoke openly of his wish to become a martyr, Michael Jonsson and Christofer Berglund write in Jane’s Intelligence Review. Other members of the so-called Gothenburg group traveled to Somalia and one was killed there in June 2007. “Another Gothenburg militant known by the alias Abu Muhammad was killed in Afghanistan in 2006." ‘These individuals," Jonsson and Berglund conclude, “are part of a steady trickle of volunteers traveling from Scandinavia to fight in Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia."

    The Swedish newsapaper “Expressen" quotes a woman from West-Sweden who “describes how the recruiters collect money among the Somalis, Arabs and Iranians. That the money allegedly goes to humanitarian aid, but is in fact used for Al-Shabaab’s terror activities."

    No asylum for terrorists, anti-Semitic Islamists and criminals

    Not all those who are part of the 40,000 strong Somali immigrant community in Sweden and Norway (20,000 in Sweden, 20,000 to 25,000 in Norway are terrorists or anti-Semitic Islamists. But there is indeed a very wide gap between oppressive Somali culture and Western values of freedom and equality of women and men.

    Robbert van Lanschot, a former Dutch Foreign Office official who knows the Islamic world quite well, claims that Somalis who seek asylum in the Netherlands, often receive money from family members for their trip to Europe. Once they have been accepted as refugees in Holland, they can claim benefits. They are then supposed to send money regularly to these family members. This is seen as a kind of “business venture." The refugee flow to Europe is not as spontaneous as some believe. All too often it is directly linked to organized crime – migrant trafficking, fraud, identity fraud, and in not so few cases to terrorism.

    The flow of refugees from Somalia and other source countries of crime and terrorism to Europe and North America must therefore be stemmed. Terrorists, Islamists and criminals from Somalia, Nigeria, Kenya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Southern Russia, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, etc., should not be entitled to enjoy protection under European and North American asylum laws.

    Too lenient immigration authorities and courts should strictly adhere to the following requirements stipulated in the above mentioned “Refugee Convention" of 1954. Article 33, paragraph 1 prohibits “contracting states" “to expel or return (‘refouler’) a refugee in any manner whatsoever to the frontiers of territories where his life or freedom would be threatened on account of his race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion." But article 33, paragraph 2 mentions the following important exception to the principle of non-refoulement: “The benefit of the present provision may not, however, be claimed by a refugee whom there are reasonable grounds for regarding as a danger to the security of the country in which he is, or who, having been convicted by a final judgment of a particularly serious crime, constitutes a danger to the community of that country."

    Nascent Police State? Dem Speaker Pelosi - "I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque is being funded"

    August 18, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a move revealing the totalitarian bent of Democrat Party leadership, yesterday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D, CA] stated that those who are working in opposition to the construction of a 13 story mosque adjacent Ground Zero in New York City should be investigated, presumably by federal authorities.

    In response to a question posed by KCBS [San Francisco] reporter Doug Sovern, Pelosi said, "...but there is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some and I join the those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded how is this being ginned up..." [source KCBS, link to mp3 of the exchange, http://kcbs.cbslocal.com/2010/08/17/pelosi-on-mosque-plans-for-the-wtc-site/]

    Numerous calls for clarification made to speaker Pelosi's office, directed to her press secretary Nadeam Elshami have so far been unreturned.

    It seems that this speaker, and this administration, is so imperious as to believe that it falls within the legitimate purview of the federal government to quash the legitimate expression of the First Amendment right to free speech.

    We find it curious that Ms. Pelosi would at this late date be so critical of the right of Americans to work against 911 denier imam Rauf's stealth jihad mosque. In 2003 Hillary Clinton set the tone for the [then] asserted right of Democrats to force the United States to lose the Iraq conflict in rather strong terms.

    "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic and we should stand up and say, "we are America we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration."

    People like Ms. Pelosi represent a clear and present danger to this republic and California voters had better note with concern the dangerous tone of the speaker as November approaches.

    Radical 911 Mosque Leader - Imam Faisal Rauf - on Obama Funded Junket


    August 17, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the lead proponent behind the controversial 9/11 mosque is slated to go on a month long “outreach" tour paid for by the State Department. His wife Daisy Khan who runs the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) will also make a similar journey.

    Rauf's itinerary, according to some press reports [for example the NY Post, http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/feds_funding_zero_imam_mideast_trip_OTq9dmoHpxbaKvJbB4VLGM] will include Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. Although the State Department stressed that he will not be permitted to fundraise for his mosque it is certain that the trip will put him in contact with potential donors and could easily be used to facilitate funding for his planned $100 million dollar Islamic Center at Ground Zero.

    Rauf continues to claim that he is a moderate while at the same time refusing to condemn Hamas. The imam has also made statements suggesting U.S culpability in the 9/11 attacks. Additionally the imam is also a proponent of Shari'a which he unbelievably states is compatible with the U.S. Constitution.

    State Department spokesman PJ Crowley on August 9 characterized Rauf as “a distinguished Muslim cleric," adding that "I think we are in the process of arranging for him to travel as part of this program, and it is to foster a greater understanding about the region around the world among Muslim-majority communities."

    Below the extended transcript of Crowley's colloquy regarding Rauf:

    "QUESTION: P.J., there’s a report in Forbes that Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam of the so-called Ground Zero Mosque is going on a trip to the Middle East. It’s basically to bring peace – moderation, and peace, and understanding to the region. And the claim by his people is that it’s a U.S. Government-supported trip. Do you know or rather is the U.S. Government supporting this trip? And would there be any problem with that in light of the – that this could be used as a fundraising – also simultaneously for fundraising for a controversial project?

    MR. CROWLEY: He is a distinguished Muslim cleric. We do have a program whereby through our Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau here at the State Department, we send people from Muslim communities here in this country around the world to help people overseas understand our society and the role of religion within our society. I think we are in the process of arranging for him to travel as part of this program. And it is to foster a greater understanding and outreach around the world among Muslim majority communities. But there are strict procedures as to the kind of activity that occurs during the course of this travel. I think this is exactly what we’ve presented it as. And we’ve done this many, many times with many leading figures since – over the past few years.

    QUESTION: And is it just him and can you give me any guidance to the itinerary or the cost?

    MR. CROWLEY: I think the itinerary is still being worked. And he is by no means the only Muslim religious figure in this country to participate in the program.

    QUESTION: And how about just that last point about whether – there’s been reports in some Arabic language media that he plans to fundraise for the Islamic center and mosque overseas. Might he be –

    MR. CROWLEY: Again, I will double check. But that would not be something he could do as part of our program." [source, http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/mideastdigest/may_aug/145818.htm]

    Once again the Obama administration is intentionally aiding and abetting radical Muslims under the guise of “outreach," an act that is now getting stale. Undoubtedly aware of Rauf's controversial political stands, Obama has over the last 48 hours taken both sides of the 911 mosque issue, supporting it during a speech at an Iftar dinner [a meal celebrating breaking the Ramadan fast] and the next day suggesting that his support doesn't really equate to support. His strategy here is to muddy the water around what only appears to be the central issue while conveniently sweeping the real key - the State Department's funding of Rauf's trip - under the carpet.

    Obama wants what he can't get - no fingerprints on a project he secretly supports. The president can't put the government seal of approval on Rauf - sending him abroad as an emissary - while claiming neutrality on Rauf's biggest project. Obama's tacit funding of Rauf's Islamism is only serving to add fodder to the growing public outrage attending this issue.

    Major Protest Against 911 Mosque Scheduled for August 22

    August 16, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Coalition to Honor Ground Zero has organized what should prove to be a very large demonstration to be held at Ground Zero in New York City on the morning of August 22.

    Participants will gather at the former World Trade Center site and from there process to the proposed location of imam Faisal Rauf's mosque.

    The protest will be part of a larger effort about which an event spokesman stated, "On August 19-22, 2010, America’s 9/11 Foundation, an organization that first coalesced eight weeks after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, will conduct its ninth trek for motorcyclists to the three 9/11 crash sites, at Shanksville, PA, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center site in New York City. (http://www.americas911ride.org)...Motorcyclists from across America; the Coalition to Honor Ground Zero; Blue Collar Corner; The Bravest; 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America; Women United International (http:womenunitedcodered.org); ACT Manhattan; and many other organizations and leaders to be announced, as well as local residents living in the Ground Zero area. The Coalition to Honor Ground Zero is calling upon all patriots to show support for the missions of America’s 9/11 Foundation and of the Patriot Guard Riders, by joining the flag-line at Ground Zero in the morning. Further information about participating organizations and speakers will be released later this week."

    The protest will commence at 8:30 a.m. with the forming of a flag line followed by a solemn memorial ceremony after which those interested in engaging in the anti-911 mosque demonstration will process to the proposed location of imam Faisal Rauf's mosque, which will begin at approximately 10:30 a.m.

    We Have Come for Your Kids - CA State Legislature Using "Mental Health" Ruse to Extend Control Over Children


    August 16, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The California health care and Education elite doesn’t think so. Senator Mark Leno’s current Assembly Bill 543, Minors; Mental Health, may be the capstone completing the 2004 California Mental Health Act - Proposition 63. This bill is the latest try in over 20 years of attempted legislation at the state and federal level to gain unfettered access to your child under the guise of preventive mental health counseling.

    This bill authorizes your child, age 12-17, to voluntarily submit to mental health counseling on a drop-in, tax paid, basis, by deleting the current requirement of parental consent or knowledge.

    The following is taken directly from the bill:

    “ In 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), which provides increased funding, personnel, and other resources to support county mental health programs and monitor progress toward statewide goals for children, adolescent youth, adults, and families. The MHSA imposed a one percent income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million. Community stakeholders groups consisting of consumers, families, and service organizations have met to identify barriers to consumer populations not only for MHSA programs, but for all mental health services. This bill seeks to address the identified barrier of parental consent for youth seeking mental health services.”

    SB 543 states, further, that the mental health counselors and their stakeholders believe that you, the parents, “are the greatest barrier to a child’s mental wellness.” This is very reminiscent of the bills and a book authored by former legislator, John Vasconcellos, while in the legislature and afterwards, stating his belief that parents and religion cause most of the mental health problems for students.

    SB 543 has passed the Senate and Assembly committees and is waiting for final action on the Assembly floor before being sent to the Governor. It needs to be vetoed.

    Beginning in the 1980’s, due to a state Supreme Court decision issued by Governor Jerry Brown’s appointee, Rose Bird, Parents now have no say over sex education, dispensing of contraceptives to minor students on campus or in off-site clinics, treatment for venereal disease, abortions and approved dismissals from school to obtain reproductive services without parental knowledge or consent.

    In other intervention tactics, the state continues to promote authorization of immunizations to students without parental knowledge or consent. Last term’s emotional debate over injecting 12-17 year olds with Gardasil is on-going. One bill, AB 1937, Nathan Fletcher, (R) entitled Pupil Health: Immunizations, is seeking to expand authority to an extended group of medical personnel to deliver immunizations in the school environment, and, include the California Academy of Family Physicians in an advisory capacity. the Ca. Academy of Family Physicians are promoters of Gardasil injections for all teens.

    Leno also has a bill, SB 1317, that would allow parental abuse type charges to be filed against parents whose child is a consistent truant. Sen. Darrell Steinberg has a companion bill, SB 1357, that would require that specific information on student school attendance, i.e. truancy rates, be filed with the state on a quarterly basis.

    If parents are declared unfit or they are actually put in jail, the child gets sent to a foster home and is then, automatically a candidate for mental health counseling because he has been uprooted from his home.

    The basic premise for bills of this nature is not new, nor are the attempts to pass legislation authorizing more and more governmental interventions new. Over the last twenty years some bills have failed and some have been passed, incrementally expanding the right of the state to set standards for individual and family mental and physical wellness.

    What is new is the bold steps being taken by legislators and community activist organizations to move into and dominate all areas of family life. It is the passage of Health Care legislation at the federal and state level that is allowing this. The state, aided by mental health stakeholders (meaning, special interests supported by tax dollars), is defining physical and mental health and wellness in partnership with departments of education, preparing today’s students to be trained in and accept future government planned jobs, to reflect a more perfect and cooperative society.

    The Steinberg bill and others authorize that all of this data on individual children will be held at the state level and supplied to future employers or whatever agency personnel is authorized to receive it. This is a part of the Workforce Development legislation.

    The very first declaration made in the 2004 Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63)states that “The people of the State of California hereby find and declare that:“Mental illnesses are extremely common; they affect almost every family in California.”

    Did we know that we had declared that? Did anybody think to ask for a definition of mental illness? Or, who was doing the defining?

    Government prepared guidelines establishing what constitutes appropriate mental health and wellness for society are being written up, just as physical health, wellness and prevention services are provided now. This is the result of the Federal Mental Health Parity Act of 1996. The Journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA, carried an article in its November, 1997, edition entitled “How Expensive is Unlimited Mental health Coverage Under Managed Care?” written by Roland Sturm of the UCLA/Rand Center on Managed Care.

    Basically this article declared that with development of advanced methods of providing drugs, combined with the knowledge that “3 out of 4 individuals are enrolled in some form of managed medical care..” the costs of providing parity (equality of treatment for both physical and mental health, wellness and prevention) won’t be an additional expense.

    On August 12, 2010, an article appeared in the Contra Costa Times entitled “Opinions sought on mental clinic.” A final Public input hearing is to be held on August 31, in Martinez, on the creation of a mental health outreach facility adjacent to the county hospital in Martinez. Under consideration is a 16 bed crisis residential unit for adults with a limited, 2 to 4 week stay, and/or an urgent care mental health clinic, (walk-in) open 8 AM to midnight where people of all ages [emphasis added] could “get prescriptions refilled, talk to a counselor and receive other help.”

    I inquired whether the phrase “people of all ages” included those ages 12-17 attending without parental consent? Apparently the spokesperson had not heard of Sen. Leno’s bill, but she did point out that under certain circumstances, the Mental health Act already allowed teens to receive emergency mental health services without parental notification. Or, if the child is in foster care, for example, with notification of the person who has official custody of the child (a social worker). If the situation is of a critical nature, say a suicide attempt in a school setting, and parents are not readily available, assistance will be administered prior to obtaining parental consent.

    Granted that there may well be special circumstances when interventions need to be applied and legislative authorization provided, is this what Senator Leno has in mind with his bill? Let’s see.

    The bill defines mental health treatment or counseling services to mean the “provision of outpatient mental health treatment or counseling by a professional person.” It also includes self referral to “residential shelter services.”

    It would provide this service to “a minor who is 12 years of age or older [who] may consent to outpatient mental health services, if, in the opinion of the professional person, as defined, the minor is mature enough to participate intelligently in the mental health treatment or counseling services.” It also expands the age limit to 25 years if the child has been in foster care. Is foster care that bad?

    By the way, this will all be funded with our tax dollars. Did I say that already?

    Does this ring a bell, folks? This is almost the exact wording of the minor consent laws for reproductive services allowing minors to get contraceptives and abortions without parental knowledge or consent.

    The most disconcerting phrase in that statement is “in the opinion of the professional person.” If the so-called professional person believes that parents and religion are the uppermost causes of problems for a child, and that opposition to gay and lesbian lifestyles is a disorientation of one’s thinking, then, of course, that child is going to be encouraged to attend a mental health drop-in facility which just might end up being on campus along with the medical clinic.

    All in one day your child could, by the end of the day, get contraceptives, and see a mental health worker (not necessarily a licensed psychologist or psychiatric nurse) who will tell that child that his or her parents have no right to restrict their reproductive freedoms and the child is free to make whatever choice she wants. It also includes self diagnosed child abuse. How many teenagers feel quite certain that they are being abused by their parents when limitations are being set? I recently listened to a member of the clergy talk about too many religious laws being placed on people making life too burdensome.

    Senator Leno, in support of his bill, has made references to teens who are, or are considering the gay and lesbian life, often subjected to stressful situations by their peers and, therefore, in need of counseling.

    In this day of post Prop 8 equality for gays and lesbians, anyone declaring opposition to the gay and lesbian lifestyle could be considered mentally unbalanced. Does your child have a religious belief that unlimited sexual activity for a minor is sinful? That’s grounds for mental illness in the minds of some social work professionals, requiring mental health prevention counseling just like physical health prevention counseling considers contraceptives to be the best defense against teenage pregnancy and venereal diseases. In other words, don’t change the activity just change the minds of those who object to or are resistant to diverse lifestyles.

    Several self-serving non-profit organizations have gotten into the act. One, entitled Zero to Three believes that children can be born with mental illness so pregnant mothers need to be counseled and watched over. Children ages zero to five years need mental health workers.

    The supporters of SB 543 provide a telling example of what Leno has in mind. The California Youth empowerment is one of the supporters. Also, Gay-Straight Alliance and Equality California are co-sponsors along with the California Adolescent Health Collaborative. All of these groups continually lobby for expanded services to children without parental knowledge, involvement or consent. They will all profit financially from passage of SB 543.

    Protect your children. Urge the Governor to veto SB 543 by Sen. Mark Leno, Minors: Mental Health. The mind you save may be your child’s.

    It's Time To Demand Islamic Reciprocity in 911 Mosque Debate

    Issues Involved are Trans-National and Bear on Efforts to Islamize the West


    August 10, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As proponents for 911 denier imam Rauf's mosque shift into a defensive mode, apparently caught off-guard by the strong public rejection of his pet project, so too shifts their argument.

    Until now what we have heard coming out of Rauf's camp consists of platitudes - disingenuously offered for sure - stressing how the 13 story mega-mosque will be an agent of healing, of bringing two worlds in opposition together.

    With that argument having been firmly rejected by a two to one majority in numerous polls the conversation now shifts to that of freedom of religion.

    In evaluating the arguments by various mosque supporters the question of the First Amendment comes front and center.

    If we are to believe those putting forth this line, Muslims have the inalienable right to build a mosque anywhere they choose in the United States, including Ground Zero, the center of Times Square or next to the Holocaust Museum on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles. To this crowd, any limitation upon the place where such a structure can be built is unconstitutional.

    Yes this is an absurd assertion on its face, but it has gained traction among the chattering class and other useful idiots, including dhimmi New York politicians such as Mayor Bloomberg and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo.

    There is a subtext to the assertion of constitutional pre-emption by the Islamists, what they want is to force a degree of religious freedom in New York and across this country [and by extension the West] nowhere obtainable anywhere in the Muslim world.

    But you might say, what applicability does that have, this isn't Saudi Arabia where the mere act of possessing a Bible brings near-instant detention and deportation.

    Despite such claims, that is exactly the issue under discussion here; we are talking about Saudi Arabia, and Syria, Egypt and every Muslim majority country because it isn't happenstance that these particular societies so severely restrict the religious rights of all non-Muslims. This happens because the dominant strain of Islam is supremely chauvinistic and bigoted regarding other faiths, this despite the fact that Muslim apologists are fond of giving only lip service to other "Abrahamic faiths" while ruthlessly suppressing them in every clime where they have the power to do so.

    The fundamentalism of Islam demands total submission to it, everywhere that it has the political muscle to call the shots.

    Yet in this country, the simple assertion that a Qur'an has been "desecrated," somewhere...anywhere, is dealt with as if it was a capital crime, an unbelievably injurious act of pure hate.

    Spare me, please.

    What is largely absent from the discussion regarding shady imam Rauf's grand plan is the inherent nature of the religion he is promoting and is practiced everywhere in the world. Please remember that in his understanding of Islam, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are apparently not terrorist entities.

    This brand of Islam is completely intolerant, misogynistic, expansionist and unapologetic.

    Yet we are being told by the imam, CAIR's various thugs and the entire North American Hamas-friendly Muslim directorate [many of them non-native born, yes it does make a difference] that they will build a mosque at Ground Zero - for the sake of peace - [wink wink, nod, nod] despite the pain, strife and religious bigotry that it will undoubtedly foster.

    Of course in the Wahhabist/Salafist birthplace, non-Muslims are not even allowed to enter Mecca, let alone approach Islam's paean to Arabian paganism, the Kaaba.

    There is a strategy being employed here. In countries and locales that aren't dominated by Islam they will insist on ridiculous legal constructions as a tool towards their real goal - the implementation of Shari'a, but when those societies fall under majority Muslim control, don't you dare expect reciprocity.

    This is why Newt Gingrich's statement that there should be no consideration of a Ground Zero mosque until a Christian church or a synagogue is built next to the Kaaba is so instructive.

    Islam is Islam and it's like no other religion, it will not broach a rival, ever. It is unreformed and remains stubbornly unenlightened as to the responsibilities of a major religion in the 21st century.

    If imam Rauf is so concerned with religious freedom and acts of accommodation in this country, we suggest that he first concern himself with demonstrating his religion's claimed tolerance where Islam reigns supreme - Saudi Arabia - until then his alleged devotion to American constitutional principles rings as hollow as the hallways of the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs as they are closed off, slamming the doors to modernity.

    Dutch MP Geert Wilders to Speak at 911 Anti-Mosque Event


    August 9, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The head of the Dutch Freedom Party, Geert Wilders, will be speaking at a 9/11 mosque protest scheduled to be held on Saturday, September 11th. The two other parties with whom he recently formed a coalition are against his participation, advising that he should “limit his statements" with one senator claiming that Wilders' speaking at the mosque protest would be “risky for Holland."

    Wilders responded by stating that “I can say what I want about the idiotic building of a mosque near Ground Zero." The protest is being organized by the group “Stop Islamization of America" [SOIA, http://sioaonline.com/].

    State Dept. and American Embassy Bring Anti-Semitic Muslims to Temple University


    August 9, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In an article entitled "Arab Students Meet Jews and Judaism Head On" the Jewish Exponent reports on a five week seminar on "religious pluralism" which was organized by the State Department and the American Embassy together with the Dialogue Institute of Temple University and the International Center for Contemporary Education. The program will bring 19 Middle Eastern students to Temple University

    According to the Exponent, “When asked if her encounter with Jews and Judaism had affected her views about Israel, Shiha, a student at Ain Shams University in Cairo, stated in crisp English that the words "Israel" and "Zionism" "fill my head with awful thoughts."… Most of the other 19 participants expressed similar sentiments, raising questions about whether the majority of the Arab world will ever accept Israel." [source, http://www.jewishexponent.com/article/21642%20/]

    The participants had been vetted by the American Embassy and were among what passes for an “educated elite" in Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq.

    Once again the absurdity of interfaith dialogue has been exposed for the sham that it is - a one way conversation which Islamists exploit to spread the acceptance of Shari'a.

    That government backing and taxpayer dollars are being used to promote such sham undertakings should be a cause of great concern.

    Canada Releases Terrorist Abdullah Khadr, Rejects U.S. Request for Extradition

    August 4, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Abdullah Khadr was made a free man today by Toronto Superior Court Justice Christopher Speyer. In doing so Speyer quashed a long-standing effort by the United States to extradite Khadr so that he might have been tried on terrorism charges.

    In a U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts February 7, 2006 court filing, Khadr was charged with, conspiracy to murder U.S. nationals outside the United States, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, possession of a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence and conspiracy to possess a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence.

    "...from in or about May, 2003, through in or about October, 2003, Khadr purchased Ak047 ammunition (for use in Russian machine guns) rocket propelled grenades, rockets and 82mm and 120 mm mortar rounds. Khadr distributed such munitions to other members of the conspiracy...for use by al-Qaeda and other fighters to kill United States and Coalition Forces military personnel..."

    Khadr is the son of al-Qaeda money-man Ahmed Said Khadr, who was killed in 2003 by Pakistani forces, after which the Khadr family was allowed to repatriate to Canada.

    9/11 Mosque Gets Go Ahead from New York Landmark Panel


    August 3, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - By unanimous vote, a New York City panel has rejected an application for landmark status for the building slated to become the site of a controversial 13 story mosque which is scheduled to open on 9/11/11, the tenth anniversary of the Muslim terrorist attack which killed nearly 3,000 Americans. In its decision, the panel rejected granting landmark status to the old Burlington Coat Factory [in which space the new mosque will occupy] which was severely damaged by the fuselage section of one of the planes used in the 9/11 attacks and which still contains artifacts of that event.

    The mosque is a project of the Cordoba Initiative run by Faisal Abdul Rauf, an Islamist who supports making the U.S. Shari'a compliant and who has refused to condemn either Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations.

    Even the liberal Jewish group, the Anti Defamation League came out against the building of the mosque near Ground Zero saying that "some legitimate questions have been raised." about the project's funding and, raising further concerns, that those associated with the effort could have links to "groups whose ideologies stand in contradiction to our shared values."

    The cost of constructing the mosque has been estimated to be in excess of $100 million dollars and Rauf has refused to disclose the source of the funding, which many fear will be coming from radicals in the Middle East.

    Several years ago Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf wrote a book called "What's Right with Islam is What's Right with America" whose title was translated in Malaysian into "A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post 9/11."

    A special edition of the book was published by two terror-linked organizations according to information provided by Andy McCarthy, the former federal prosecutor who was responsible for putting the "Blind Sheikh," Omar Abdel Rahman away for life - a major terror conviction.

    "Now it emerges that a "special, non-commercial edition" of this book was later produced, with Feisal's cooperation, by two American tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood: the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought...Both ISNA and IIIT have been up to their necks in the promotion of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood's ruthless Palestinian branch, which is pledged by charter to the destruction of Israel...both ISNA and IIIT were cited by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators in a crucial terrorism-financing case involving the channeling of tens of millions of dollars to Hamas through an outfit called the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. For the last 15 years, Hamas has been a designated terrorist organization under U.S. law."

    The 9/11 mosque is a symbol of Islamist triumphalism. Building a 13 story Islamic Center at Ground Zero is a slap in the face to all Americans.

    As Andrew McCarthy put it:"The Ground Zero project is a test of America's resolve to face down a civilizational jihad that aims, in the words of its leaders, to destroy us from within."

    Peres Charge of Brit Anti-Semitism Spot On, But When Will He Reject Oslo?

    August 2, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Shimon Peres, Israel's president - and a seminal figure in that country's history - shook the Brits up this weekend, indicting them for a kind of soft anti-Semitism, accusing them, sardonically, of hating the Jews only as much as is "necessary."

    Peres buttressed his allegation, charging UK MPs with pandering to Muslim voters.

    "And in England there has always been something deeply pro-Arab...and anti-Israeli, in the establishment...They abstained in the [pro-Zionist] 1947 UN partition resolution ... They maintained an arms embargo against us in the 1950s ... They always worked against us. They think the Arabs are the underdogs." [source, David Harrison, Adrian Bloomfield, Fury as Israel President Claims the English are Anti-Semitic, Telegraph UK, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/israel/7920330/Fury-as-Israel-president-claims-English-are-anti-semitic.html]

    While - judging from Brit actions - it seems beyond conjecture that Peres' indictment regarding them is correct, though presented in a ham-fisted manner. But a greater recognition on the part of Mr. Peres is needed, as long as the air is being cleared so-to-speak, he should seriously consider rejecting Israel's suicidal Oslo "peace process," in which he, Yitzhak Rabin and PLO terrorist Yasser Arafat forged under the direction of president Clinton in September of 1993.

    In the ensuing 7 years the ruinous nature of Oslo has been on display, being ridiculously used as some sort of metric whereby Israel is negatively judged, as if it's Israeli's rather than the Muslim Arabs who are responsible for the continuous state of low intensity warfare in the region.

    In that sense Peres' 1994 Nobel Peace prize is a symbol of servitude, rather than achievement.

    Despite his long and commendable record of service, Mr. Peres is prototypical of the old-guard leftist Jewish leader whose devotion to pleasing outside interests and appearing as non-authentically Jewish as possible to the outside world, is constantly at odds with the security needs of his country. He has refused so-far to accept his part in holding Israel to a standard which is impossible to achieve, without committing national suicide.

    War aside, leaders in the Peres mold refuse to recognize that in Israel's under-appreciated but absurdly accommodational policies vis-à-vis its Arab population [now 20% of the whole] lies slow death. Given the far higher birth rate of the "Palestinians," at some point in the future, Jews will find themselves a minority in their own country - an inescapable demographic time bomb if not dealt with.

    In a larger sense, the truth that Mr. Peres and his ilk are unwilling to confront is that unless the violent jihadist "Palestinian," element is defeated on the battlefield, until terrorists such Haniyeh and his henchmen face the personal prospect of imminent destruction nothing will change.

    It's impossible to sue for peace absent a defeated party.

    Only a victor can establish peace, it's up to Israel's Jews to seize that victory now. Left to the devices of the Arab Muslims and team Obama, without action, the country's future isn't bleak, it's black.
